The nest that welcomes us ...
“Home is the place where somebody waits for you”
In 2004, ´ace moved into its “new” house in the Colegiales neighborhood in Buenos Aires. It was extensively renovated for more than a year to become the dreamed space for carrying out our activities.
Our “nest” materialized on the structure of a family residence that dates back to 1914, typical construction of the suburbs of Buenos Aires City between 1880 and 1930. The refurbishing of the building respected that traditional design of “chorizo (sausage)house”, whose structure develops a succession of equal rooms along a longitudinal axis. This typology is the architectural result of the houses built by the wave of European immigrants, mostly Italian and Spanish, and expresses the transformations suffered in Argentina since 1850.
After 15 years of working in it -and having received artists from all over the world- we realized that our house is also a living organism that has known how to adapt to the changes and new spatial challenges that both, the projects that we undertake and the artists that produce them, have raised us.
